Los Blancos to bounce back from midweek upset

Real Madrid were on the wrong end of a seismic UEFA Champions League shock in midweek but we’re backing Los Blancos to respond in the right way when they head to RCDE Stadium to face Espanyol this Sunday.

In what will go down as one of the biggest upsets in the competition’s history, Los Blancos were turned over 2-1 by Moldovan minnows Sheriff Tiraspol at the Bernabeu, on a night where nothing seemed to go right for Carlo Ancelotti’s men.

The result naturally marks an embarrassing low for the club who have such a rich history on the continent, though it would be folly to overreact to the outcome from a punting perspective going forwards.

While Real were poor, they did dominate Tuesday’s tie and basically came up short due to a glut of missed chances. Their goalscoring form on the whole this season has been excellent with 21 netted in seven La Liga starts, a tally which has helped to yield five wins and two draws.

Victory for Ancelotti’s side this Sunday will go along way towards seeing their midweek flop blow over and based on everything we’ve seen so far this term, they should prove too classy for 2020/21 Segunda champions Espanyol.

Periquitos have set themselves up to be hard to beat and that’s certainly been the case with just seven goals conceded in as many league matches. Nonetheless, Vicente Moreno’s men have just one win under their belts since returning to the top flight, while they’ve also failed to score in four of their outings.

Taking everything into account, we’re playing with a straight bat for this Sunday’s action in Barcelona, by backing the La Liga leaders at a general 4/6. Espanyol’s efficient rear-guard should ensure that they avoid a serious backlash from the visitors, though we’re tipping Madrid to bank the points via a 2-0 correct score.
